Sunday Night Football producer joins Derby coverage

This Saturday’s Kentucky Derby is often referred to as the Super Bowl of horse racing, so it stands to reason that a producer of football’s biggest game feels comfortable tackling the biggest equine race on the planet. Fred Gaudelli, who produces Sunday Night Football on NBC — and who has produced the Super Bowl in the past and will in 2012, as well – will lead Derby coverage for the first time this week.

“It’s very close to producing a Super Bowl because it’s a huge sporting spectacle with all the elements that surround it, and then the game starts,” Gaudelli told the Thoroughbred Times. “The Derby is the same thing with all the spectacle; just like the Super Bowl we have all these elements and story to tell that make it the event it is.”

The most exciting two minutes in sports? You betcha.
